    I worked at Tupperware full-time

    Pros

    Fun group of people. Offer both an on-site gym and cafeteria (food isn't too bad).

    Cons

    Hated watching the company downsize staff every couple of years. Losing so much experience and knowledge. Talked work-life balance, but didn't really create an environment where it was possible.

    Advice to Management

    Implement 360 reviews of managers and executives, but not sure how you'll get honesty. Invest in ongoing training for all staff and watch most of the seat warmers become more productive.

    I worked at Tupperware (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This opportunity gave me good networking skills. I learned how to be self-employed and the requirements of being my own boss. I could decide when I wanted to work and how much I wanted to work. Of course, the more you put into it the more you would get out of it. I met a lot of wonderful people. I also learned what it really meant to be a customer service representative.

    Cons

    While this opportunity was mostly a wonderful experience, I was caught between my recruiter and her boss. They fought over me. There was a lot of pressure to host parties, etc. This caused me a lot of stress and I regretted even signing up to be a consultant. Had this not existed, I am sure I would have enjoyed the process much more and would have continued the business after I got married and moved away.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, try to take away the pressure to perform. Not everyone who joins the organization will want to be just like you, especially at first. Give more time for your recruits to learn the system and products before pushing them so hard to succeed.

    Pros

    Well known globally as THE name in Plastic storage. Decent compensation packages.

    Cons

    Executive team favoritism; High turn-over, self-imposed or forced; Antiquated systems; Not considered a modern company. Employees work HARD, long hours with little recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees as much as you respect your sales force; Update your systems to keep up with competitors; Walk the talk re: vision and mission.

    Advice to Management

    When people request time off, don't make them wait weeks for a decision. Don't micromanage; let people do their jobs.

    I worked at Tupperware full-time

    Pros

    very competitive benefits, passionate competent leadership

    Cons

    low base pay, slow career growth due to size and structure of the organization. Stayed here for 8 years training sales people, then you hit a dead end for promotion because of the very limited upper management structure, so if you want to be promoted you might consider change of career

    I worked at Tupperware full-time

    Pros

    The company philosophy of empowering their independent sales force with a great earning opportunity is admirable. The people that work at the corporate office are competent and work very hard. There are opportunities to promote from within. The campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    Office politics are ridiculous. Lack of true leadership to do what is right rather than what will further careers is rampant. Strategy continually changing with little results. The difference between what is expected and what is possible with existing resources is unattainable.

    Advice to Management

    None as the culture is very resistant to change. Take accountability for poor decisions.
